DRtL Episode 30: Wes Craven Retrospective

Don’t Read the Latin

Apologies for the delay with this episode — it’s even later than we said it was going to be when we said it was going to be late.

We needed a little extra time to pull this one together. We were both saddened to learn of the recent passing of Wes Craven, who pretty much single-handedly reinvented the horror movie genre over the course of his career — not just once, but three times.

Montoure talks about movies that make you feel unsafe, Jennifer talks about getting to meet Robert Englund, and so much more.

Official Drink of this Episode: Woodchuck Fall Harvest Hard Cider with cinnamon whiskey. It’s ridiculously good. You should try it.
